Thanksgiving sales may not be the traditional reason to give thanks. But while some are shopping for the perfect turkey and ideal sweet potatoes, others are making lists and checking them twice when it comes to the Thanksgiving sales hours and deals for stores such as Walmart, Target, and Best Buy. What’s worth pushing yourself out of the dining room chair after gnawing the drumstick? Check out the hot Thanksgiving Day sales below.
Best Buy is starting its Black Friday on Thanksgiving, according to USA Today. Why get up at 4 a.m. the day after the holiday when you can head out on Thursday? With that theory in mind, Best Buy has rounded up its Thanksgiving sales to start at 5 p.m. with “doorbuster” bargains.
What to look for? Apple sales include a $100 deduction from the Apple Watch. Add video games and TVs to your gotta-get-it list. And if you’re a night owl, Best Buy has you covered on Thanksgiving by staying open until 1 a.m.
If you decide to go for the 5 p.m. Thanksgiving sales at Best Buy, you can save $280 on a Toshiba 49-inch LED 1080p HDTV, which is priced at $149.99. Prefer a Samsung 60-inch LED 4K Ultra HD Smart TV at $799.99? You’ll save $700. And if a GoPro Hero4 Silver is on your list, you can buy it for $399.99, plus get an $80 Best Buy gift card as well as a free 64GB memory card.
Prefer to get your Thanksgiving Day sales splurge ended early? Start at Best Buy at 5 p.m., then steer straight to Target. The chain opens its locations at 6 p.m. for Thanksgiving sales in 2015, reported the Dispatch.
As for what to look for at Target on Thanksgiving Eve? Sales items include kitchen items and home goods, according to the Huffington Post.
Bundles can boost the temptation to splurge at Target, such as iPads bundled with gift cards for as much as $140. And when it comes to refining your selection, consider an iPad mini 4 for what’s predicted to be one of the best Thanksgiving sales items.
What to do if you’re not sure what little Johnny or Janie wants for a holiday gift, and you’re shopping on Thanksgiving with toys in mind? Before you leave for that hot sale, check out the Target Kids’ Wish List app.
It’s designed to help kids choose their holiday desires.
For Walmart, think what’s known as “last-generation” iPads, including the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2. Look for Walmart Rollbacks starting early as you plan that Thanksgiving Day sale shopping list, and toys as well as home goods plus video game consoles and bundles are anticipated to be hot deals.
If you’ve got your eyes on the prize of women’s clothes, consider Macy’s, which will offer Thanksgiving Day sales starting at 6 p.m. Bargains include 25 to 60 percent off women’s boots. A mailer includes coupons such as $10 off a purchase totaling at least $25, while if you buy $50 of products, you can get $20 off.
Sears will also open at 6 p.m., while Toys ‘R’ Us is joining the stores throwing open the doors for Thanksgiving sales at 5 p.m., reported USA Today. Walmart has yet to officially state its Thanksgiving sales hours, but in 2014, Walmart opened at 6 p.m.
Target plans to unveil new deals on November 25, to whet shoppers’ appetites one day prior to Thanksgiving Day itself. Beginning November 22 and ending December 1, Target plans to have discounts on complete categories of products on a daily basis.
If you prefer to shop from the comfort of your home, look for Target’s deals on Thanksgiving Day online. Macy is following that plan as well, putting its Thanksgiving Day sales items on the day of feasting, as well.
All of the news about Thanksgiving Day sales comes even as Target has announced the closing of 13 locations by the end of January, 2016, as the Inquisitr reported.
